"A girl is trapped in a box - or, is she? This 16mm/HD, surrealist short follows Luna as she listlessly travels through different environments, trying to find a way out of 'the box' in which she is trapped."
All of the 16mm film footage in which the actress paces back-and-forth inside of the box is double-exposure work done in-camera. I also did all of the sound work and sound mixing, including some of the music.
This film was shot over two nights in Boston, MA. The library scene was shot one evening with the help of several MassArt film major students - and a spyder dolly track. In fact, as the actress Tara Neves curled her hair, the crew shot some footage of their own - a piece I titled 'Dances With Speed' featuring Andrew Mui.
I love working with film, and I hope to use it in the future, despite the discontinuation of motion picture film production and declining printing businesses. Haha, sounds promising, right? I have a few rolls saved up, hopefully I can keep them 'fresh' over time. You can see more of 'The Box,' along with some hilarious off-shoot videos captured behind the scenes, on the portfolio page.
